Trip Expenses

March was another whirlwind month through South East Asia.  We had 6 nights left in Malaysia and then headed into Thailand for 20 nights before finishing the month in Cambodia.   During our time in these three countries we traveled by ferry (George Town to Langkawi, Langkawi to Ko Lipe, Ko Lipe to AoNang), bus, taxi, plane, subway and motorbike.  We took a flight from Krabi to Chiang Mai and then had to take an unplanned flight from Chiang Mai to Bangkok when the night train was full.  Our 3rd flight of the month was from Bangkok to Siem Reap, Cambodia which we are glad we did since immigration and customs was a breeze compared to what others have experienced crossing by land.

Trip Expenses

Our travel expenses for the month of February 2014.  This month we visited 3 countries; Bali, Singapore and Malaysia.  The most time was spent in Bali and the least in Singapore with just 3 nights.  While in Bali we hired a driver for several days to show us the sites and are very glad we did even though it added to the budget.  To get to Malaysia we took a very nice bus from Singapore to Kuala Lumpur where we stayed at a Marriott for 3 nights free by using hotel points.  Continue Reading

Trip Expenses

This month’s expenses were a little different since we had Simone’s dad, Bob, with us for almost 2 weeks over Christmas and half of the accommodation costs during that time were covered by him.  We also did a lot of travel this month by plane.  The figures for transportation include flights from Melbourne to Tasmania, Tasmania to Sydney and Sydney to Perth.  We also only had the campervan for the first 11 days of the month, before renting a car for 7 days in Tasmania and 12 days in Sydney.   We also traveled by bus while in Melbourne.

RTW Expenses

Keeping track of expenses is hard work!

We decided to track our RTW expenses, not just to help stay within our budget but also to help others in planning for a Round The World trip.  When we began saving and planning it was hard to find comprehensive expense lists.  We found lots of sites and blogs saying that you could travel round the world from 20,000 a year to 100,000 a year, that’s a pretty wide range.
